The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) estimates that a car accident occurs every few seconds in the United States, resulting in millions of serious and catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths.
For this reason, car accidents caused by another driver's negligence are the most common personal injury cases. Negligent activities include speeding, failing to use or observe traffic signals, driving unsafely in poor weather conditions, and inattentiveness. Other common causes of car accidents include defective products, drivers' intentional or reckless behavior, and drunk drivers.
Although car accidents are common, these cases are often complex and require an experienced attorney. Cases where the driver at fault has no insurance coverage can be even more difficult to successfully bring to court. The damages available in auto accident cases are the same as for general personal injury matters.
Keith F. Franchini possesses over 33 years of experience representing clients in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico in connection with personal injury claims.
Mr. Franchini is skilled at handling many types of complex personal injury claims, including, but not limited to the following:
- Car Accidents, including those involving uninsured motorists
- Construction Site Accidents
- Slip and Fall
- Premises Liability
- Dog Bites
- Semi-Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
- Wrongful Deaths
These types of injuries involve fractures and broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, and burn injuries. Mr. Franchini understands the devastating impact an accident or injury can have on the victim and your family, and he uses every available legal technique to ensure you will receive the maximum recovery to which you are entitled.
The amount of damages you are eligible to recover depends on the facts of your specific case. New Mexico law generally allows recovery of both economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and any other incidental expenses you incur as a result of the injury. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of companionship, and loss of enjoyment of life.
